Living Medicine: The Assessment Process

It is always and only our bodies – Physically, Emotionally, Mentally and Spiritually – in concert with The Divine (God/Jesus/Holy Spirit) that can ever heal us. We can either support that process or get in the way.

That you’re visiting this site suggests you’re ready to get out of the way and let your body do its job (or at least want to learn more about what that job is).

Many people don’t realize just how much needs to be taken into account to actually get them on the right path to recuperation and wellness. For the physician skilled in Natural Medicine is committed to treating them, NOT their “disease.”

Sounds simple enough, no? But to do that, the physician must understand, among other things:

  • Who the person is in the context of time – that is, who they are now and how they came to be that way. This is the Causal Chain.
  • Which level the causal issues are on: Physical, Emotional, Mental or Spiritual. We call those the Impacted Levels of Being. We want therapies that will influence those levels in the right combination and sequence to restore their related organ systems to good function.
  • What the person’s reactional mode is. Metabolically and behaviorally, do they tend to overreact? Underreact? Not react at all or react destructively? This is their Miasm. Knowing this helps the doctor provide the right level of support, giving just what’s needed, neither overdoing or underdoing.
  • The impact of any one event or series of events that triggered the generation and expression of disease and dysfunction. This Sensitizing Event or Syndrome marks the onset of obvious symptoms.
  • Which material and energetic toxins are getting in the way of the person’s capacity to heal and their impact. This is the Homotoxicological Impact Interpretation.
  • The impact of any derailed or impaired phases of physical and psychological/emotional development on the person’s capacity to heal. These are known as Maturational Phase Disturbances.
  • The person’s innate and practiced coping mechanisms for living in society and with themselves – what we call Hippocratic Temperament. This helps the doctor tailor therapeutic counseling to their needs.
  • The reality and depth of a person’s spiritual beliefs – or lack thereof – with respect to their actual practice, not just what they say they believe. Knowing the Depth of Spiritual Reality helps the doctor offer useful and welcome suggestions and direction when called for.
  • How in tune the person is with their body – Physically, Emotionally, Mentally and Spiritually. PEMS Awareness helps prioritize the person’s complaints and insights.
  • The present reality of the person’s state of Vitality, degree of toxic impact and how long they have to spur therapeutic change before being overcome by their current state of illness. This is called Vital Assessment.
  • The reality and depth of a person’s hygiene and physical care beliefs – or lack thereof – with respect to their actual practice, not just what they say they do. This Depth of Physical Reality guides the doctor to appropriate interventions and suggestions to help the person better adapt, overcome and thrive.
  • The conventional medical diagnosis, data and current conventional treatment – what we call the Degree of Conventional Medical Indoctrination/Impact.
  • What must be done to help the person get better versus what must be done to suppress symptoms, or the Healthward Focus/Interpretation of Patho-Physiology.

The Cliff Notes version? In order for Dr. Fabricius to help his patients heal and restore health, he must understand – deeply and broadly – who they are and treat them in a way that facilitates their innate capacity to heal.

Thus, a thorough history is required.


Your First Visit with Dr. Fabricius

Your first visit is broken into two parts, which may be done in person or over the phone:

  • New patient case intake (NP1)
  • New patient protocol review (NP2)

Between these, Dr. Fabricius does his Case Review and Protocol Design (CRPD). This is when he makes sense of the data gathered during the first visit, does the appropriate supplemental research and prepares your unique Living Medicine Protocol.

NP1 lasts an average of 6 to 8 hours and NP2, 4 to 5 hours. Dr. Fabricius’ time with your CRPD ranges from 8 to 12 hours.

These are lengthy appointments, to be sure, but the time investment is critical. Together, you will be working on the big picture. If previous, piecemeal attempts had helped – treating symptoms while racking up diagnoses – you’d likely not be looking for a better way.

There are no quick fixes to maintain health, much less recover from serious states of illness, disease and degeneration. The body needs time to orchestrate and manage productive healing. Even then, it takes the right combinations of therapeutics directed at the right organ systems in the right sequence.

Living Medicine shows the way.
